#39 – Simplicity Via Complexity

Sometimes the end goal of simplicity is on the other side of the valley of complexity. Today I’m talking with Joel Zaslofsky about just how complicated being simple can be, specifically through the lens of planning a huge simplicity event. An event about simplicity should be super-simple, right?

Not exactly.

Joel and I discuss how complexity creeps in, give encouragement to people struggling with complexity in their simplifying efforts, and spend a completely unhealthy amount of time discussing mind maps.

Some relevant links from this episode:

SimpleRev (the SimpleRev event site)

Value Of Simple (Joel’s main site)

Joel’s SimpleRev “High Level” Mind Map

Mind maps (Wikipedia)

How to Mind Map (from Tony Buzan, the “inventor” of mind-mapping)

FreeMind (mind-mapping software)
